InaTanagijou (7).JPG


Consisting of four baileys arranged along a narrow promontory and separated by dry moats, Tanagi Castle was built by the Tanagi Clan who were vassals of the Minowa Clan. They were defeated by Takeda Shingen. Tanagijō was captured by Takeda forces in 1545.

Visit Notes

The ruins of Tanagi Castle straddle a narrow hilltop overlooking the river plain of the Tenryūgawa. Ruins consist of trenches and baileys, the latter of which are now farmland. I actually climbed up from the base of the cliff via one of the trenches. It continues on the otherside of the road. To my right was the former castle's rear bailey. There is a small marker here for the castle.
